Hello Friends and Happy Sunday
I hope you had a good weekend with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family/friends and did something fun and enjoyable. Yesterday, I took my car in for an oil change and Malik was my chauffeur so I took full advantage by having him drive me all around town running errands – it was good being Mommy! I had him drive me to Dunkin Donuts, Dutch Country Farmers Market, Family Dollar, PNC Bank and then finally to Lowe’s it was fun for me, not so much for him.
We gave him Tayair’s old car, remember the 2002 Hyundai Elantra, well you would have thought it was a new Mercedes because when he realized the plants had to ride in the back seat he wasn’t happy! I purchased two hanging baskets, a Color Combo Patio plant, Sweet Basil, Heirloom Tomatoes, Curled Parsley and Cilantro and they rode shotgun in the back seat fully protected by a yard of plastic – it was hilarious!
Hanging baskets – Petunias, Calibrachoa and Lobelia
Curled Parsley – boil and drink like tea it’s great for the digestive system
Cilantro is a wonderful fragrant herb
Basil also keeps the bugs away from your garden
Fresh Garden Tomatoes – scents of summer
Hibiscus is a perfect patio plant
Color Combo Welcome Plant – Bidens, Licorice Plant and Trailing Petunia
Love the handles on these hanging baskets
Time to check out

Today I cleaned in and around the pool and cleared out my little garden which was overrun with Mint from last year.
Have a wonderful evening – Smooches!
The colors of summer –
Using a recipe from the @usaweekend magazine I made a Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. I didn’t have mozzarella so I used sharp cheddar and instead of cherry tomatoes I cut up a fresh tomato. The parsley was fresh from my garden.
